Renault Owners Club of North America - support, parts
& resources for your older Renault
The Renault Owners Club of North America was established in May 1991, originally listed as the "Renault Owners Club of Southern California" with ten founding members. By the spring of 1995 our organization was averaging 115 members nationwide and abroad. Early 1996 the title was changed to include "of North America." The purpose of this club is to keep our Renaults in shape and on the road, as well as a place for individuals with a fascination for Renaults to meet other members with similar interests. We currently average approximately 350 members with 300+ cars registered.
We specialize in mostly the older Renaults; 4CV, Dauphine, Caravelle & Floride, R8, R10, R5 (leCar and Turbo) and all the later front engine cars (mostly the ones that were exported to the U.S.), Fuego (R17) Alliance, Medallion, Encore. We do have members with R4 and really vintage cars.
We also have a quarterly newsletter called the "Renault News," which covers all the major Renault events in North America including swap meets, concours, and racing. Our club is affiliated with other clubs and organizations in France, England, Germany, Sweden, Finland, and Australia so we have all the latest news about Renault. Our online classifieds section of the forum, the "Marketplace" is an excellent source for locating a previously owned (and loved) Renault, new and used parts, and literature for sale.
After almost 23 years, the Renault Owners Club of North America continues to grow. To keep up with the demand of our members we are updating our website and adding new services. We have recently added a members-only section where club members are able to access the latest issue of the "Renault News" as well as back issues of the newsletter, as well as the club's Registry of cars and Directory of members. We also feature an online library, which includes technical manuals, part lists, and even original ads and shop manuals on CD available to members only. We now have back issues of the Renault News on CD as well.
With all these added services, the website is updated regularly, so check back in often.
